TITLE. LYRICS

Studio version

Inside the line

Hey!
You!
You too!

I could make the choice for you
Dirt sticks close to you, it's all around me
Everything I try to do
I can't even seem to find the room to move

But you think you're number one. Hey!
Actors though the film has gone. You!
Crowded in a
room for one. You too!
Darkness when the lights are on
Turn me on for good, it's so exciting
Slogans on the wall don't need no advertising
I can't even seem to find the room to move

Shackled up in fantasy. Hey!
Hoping for some time to breathe. You!
Suffocation comes too easy. You too!
I just want some time to breathe
Dirt sticks close to you, it's all around me
Everything I do, they're always trying to crowd me
I can't even seem to find the room to move

Watching every move I make. Hey!
Choice of one that's hard to take. You!
In fact it's just a big mistake. You too!
The effects that make it feel like you
Maggots run inside the line. Hey!
Ready for the perfect crime
Say there is no right or wrong. You too!
I don't know what's right or wrong
